Ok, so I was up for the challenge. The elevation of 1.4km was un- imaginable but the the run, now that it's over was incredable.
We were running though Conservation Parks, cris-crossing creeks and oodles of single tracks - my favourite. It was the best!
Mind you the last 300m was the hardest. I guess because my legs were exhausted but I did the most unforgivable thing ever ... I stopped.
Not that I had much of a choice. You see, Mt.Lofty Summit where we were headed is a very popular place and to get to it there are stairs leading up to the road that we cross to make the final ascent.
The drink of orange juice up the top was SO nice and after 30mins I felt fine. Our car was parked about 1.5km away down the hill at Cleland. I have to say that walking the distance really helped with recovering.
The next day I felt great! So much, that I have registered for Yurrebilla 56km Ultra Marathon, in 5 months time. How weird is that - hehe.
